Product Description

Babies feel at ease and safe in the extra-large weighing tray of DETECTO's MB130 scale.

  • With dual graduations ranging from neonatal to pediatric care (accurate to 0.01 lb / 5 grams), the MB130 digital scale features a removable tray which automatically converts the scale into a low-profile step-on toddler scale with a maximum capacity of 44 lb / 20 kg
  • Powered by one 9V alkaline battery (not included) or AC adapter (included) with Auto Shut-off feature after 2 minutes to conserve battery life
  • The 1" (25-mm) high LCD with 5-digit display provides highly-visible readouts in pounds and kilograms
  • The integral analog measuring tape (included) reads up to 21 9/16" (55 cm) with 1/16" (1 mm) increments
  • The convenient HOLD buttons on the scale retain the infant’s measurements on the display even after they are taken off the scale, so the patient can be attended to first before recording measurements
  • The easy-to-clean plastic tray is ideal for sterile environments and features a roomy space for babies to lay comfortably. The surface material is kind to the skin and is easy to disinfect.
  • The convenient Zero function allows the user to automatically subtract the weight of a blanket, toy, or diaper from the infant’s weight measurement
  • Weighing only 5 lbs, the MB130 is handy and lightweight for transporting to different locations
  • The optional model DLM digital length measuring rod can be easily mounted to the scale for an all-digital measuring station
  • The optional carrying case model MB-CASE eases portability and provides safe storage when not in use
